Cleveland's Premier Adult Rowing Club

Military/Veterans Rowing League

For New and Experienced rowers.

In conjunction with Summer Rowing League (SRL), this program teaches the basics of sweep rowing in a coed team setting for those interested in a fun and challenging training program with the goal of competing at appropriate levels as skills progress. Participants start by learning the basics of the rowing stroke and join experienced military and veteran rowers as confidence and capabilities improve. The program is open to BK (below-the-knee) amputees given the nature of the program.

  • A military discount would apply to eligible Military/Veterans who register for Veterans/Military programs
  • Military Program Eligible: Active Duty Service Members, National Guard and Reservists, Veterans/Service-disabled Veterans, Gold Star Spouses

The 15-week program is designed for rowers of all abilities and skill levels, from beginners to seasoned veterans, to row together as a team in an eight-person shell. Teams prepare for racing in a mid-season and end-of-season regatta on the Cuyahoga River. All SRL rowers receive an SRL T-shirt and enjoy an end of season cook out at the last regatta.
